The Georgetown University Energy Prize (GUEP) Dashboard provides an unprecedented look at energy consumption data from 50 communities, representing more than 60 cities and counties, 100 utilities, and millions of people, competing to change the way America uses energy.
This interactive data Dashboard provides the tools you need to drill into monthly energy use, and analyze some of the financial and environmental impacts of community energy savings energy savings.
The Dashboard presents the aggregated electric and natural gas energy consumption from the municipal and residential sectors in the cities and counties competing for the Prize.
The Dashboard rankings are based on the Georgetown Energy Prize’s “Overall Energy Score,” which calculates each community’s reduction in overall energy use in 2015, compared to the same period in 2013 and 2014, and adjusts it for population, weather, and to account for the energy used in producing and distributing the energy.

Communities with a ranking of 50 are currently working to finalize and submit—or correct previously submitted—data and are therefore unranked until their data is updated.
As of January 2016, the Dashboard currently compares January through September of 2015 against the same period in 2014 and 2013. These initial results naturally hold certain seasonal advantages and disadvantages for communities across the country. Such seasonal variations will ultimately even-out since the competition is based on 48 months of data (24 baseline + 24 competition).
The Dashboard will be updated quarterly through 2017 with new data submitted from the participating communities and utilities.
